Innovation award for FilterSpec
23 January 2013
The 2011 Frost & Sullivan North America New Product Innovation Award in Personal Protective Equipment has been presented to JSP for FilterSpec. Launched in the first half of 2010, the product combines safety spectacle
"JSP Ltd's FilterSpec is a significant innovation in the personal protective equipment market as it addresses one of the most long standing challenges faced by the industry - that of 'fit'," notes Frost & Sullivan research analyst, Anamika Chaudhuri.
"In addition to overcoming the problem associated with the incompatibility between safety eyewear and a respiratory protective mask, the product has solved problems related with poor face fit such as leakage and fogging of the lens interrupting the normal flow of work." The FilterSpec combines the respiratory mask with safety glasses or goggles in such a manner that both the safety devices function efficiently, independently and in absolute harmony as a unit and satisfies the fit test mandated by HSE.
The safety spectacles comply with EN 166.1.F standard and the goggle with EN166.1.B.3.4 and the respiratory mask complies with the EN1827 FMP2 standard.
